and knitting! I'm just not great at getting outside to take photos. Saturday I tend to be busy, and it just so jhappens that the past few Sundays have been overcast (at least when MrC is around and I need him to take a photo)
I need to photograph the Dewberry cowl, which was finished last month. This was an interesting knit. you start off as if knitting a top down shawl, knit until the sides are wide enough to join and go over the head, then knit about four inches in the round. A very wearable shawl/cowl hybrid. Look out for more of the same!
I've finished a hat for MrC. This was a Giftalong pattern and I didn't realise when I bought it that it was called Christopher, just had to knit it for him! It's a long closed tube, worn doubled, an easy knit producing a warm hat. I've used some of the unlabelled oddball stash. I'm pretty sure this is a cashmere wool blend, so soft. .
His socks though are frogged :( G&Ts and knitting don't mix!
That leaves the one thing on the needles, my Chirstmas cardigan, cast on over the Christmas period. I'm using Skein Queen's Oosie, in Holly Berries (of course), the pattern is Hannah Fettig's Effortless cardigan. This is the frist time I've knitted one of her designs and it's super easy. Top down, stocking stitch. I'm just past the waist shaping and it's all plain knitting until the 2x2 ribbing,
I took an indoors photo this morning, not great but it shows colour and progress.
Coincidentally Quince and Co are releasing a new book on texture featuring her designs. I'll have to keep an eye out. At the end of 2016 I emptied my ravelry queue (which I never looked at anyway) and now I'm seriously considering using that feature to keep track of possible new projects to cast on! So many on ravlery, even when I filter them!
